I recently bought this amp without having played it or seen it. I took a chance and I must say that I was not disappointed the slightest bit. This is a marvelously versatile amp. True, it handles blues best of all but I have been able to get many good rock sounds and it has one of the best clean channels I have ever played on. I haven't explored the tremo function on it much because I have little use for it. Bottom line is this amp has a wonderful clean sound, blues tone to die for, tubes break up perfectly even at relatively low volumes, sounds great with my Buddy Guy strat and my 335, screaming highs, a tight, punchy middle and bottom and alot less coin than inferior sounding tube combos. If I had to do it all over, I would still buy this amp over the number of fenders I tried, including the Bassman and Deville reissues.

I've been reading up on this amp for quite some time. I finally ordered one 2 weeks ago and when I got it one channel was defective. I had to take it back. Now the replacement is on back order and I'm still waiting. Could be a couple more weeks according to Peavey. I can't say enough about all the great customer service Guitar Center has done to make it right. I'm just really disappointed in Peavey for sending me a defective product and then not seeing to it that a customer is taken care of in a timely manner. I now only hope they have better quality control and I can enjoy the replacement once I receive it. If the next one has ANY issues whatsoever, I will return it for a refund and then go back to my Fenders. Sorry to feel this way...

Made in Mississippi, U.S. of A.

By Joaquin

from Texas

I bought this amp about 9 years ago, not really knowing what I'd gotten. After comparing it to other amps, I realized this had one of the best blues sounds out there. It has deep lows that go great with Strats. You can also rock although you'd be better off using a pedal for distortion, and then you can rock as you wish. The sound is so warm, people comment on how beautiful sounding the playing is, and I quickly point out to the amp. After a while the tweed material will peel off a bit, but that's no biggie. But if you want warm, fat, blues sound, this IS IT!

Amazingly versatile tube amp for an amazing price!

By thanksman,itsreptar

from Sarnia, ON

This amp is simply astounding. I tried nearly every amp in the whole guitar center and settled on this lil beast right here. The cleans sound great, and go anywhere u want them to, from shrill and thin to bassy and fat. The OD is what caught my attention tho, with a twist of the PRE knob, this sucker can pump out a bluesy crunch, to british overdrive, to flat out metal. Also, the reverb is deep and warm sounding, and the trem is good too though i dont use it much. it's loud too! good jammin and recording amp tho i wouldnt play a gig with it unless they have a PA system. i recommend buying a footswitch if youre going to be doing anythign than just dinkin around in ur room, but ya, all tube, amazing sound, and great OD for an amazing price, can't go wrong.

Never underestimate Peavey

By Aaron

from Texas

This amp would be my favorite out of all of the custom classic series, but all of them are still awesome amps. Whatever genre you play, this amp does it, very versatile, very jazzy cleans, very bluesy overdriven tones. I've played on all of them, devilles, blues juniors, twin reverb, vox, there's no reason to spend a fortune when you can buy an amp better than a lot of higher end amps at an amazing deal. I'm not much of a stompbox or an effect board fan but tube amps brings out the best of their sound, this one definately does. So what are you waiting for? Get you one of these!

reliable friend

By Rick James

from west palm beach florida

peaveys are rock solid.They are well built and sound great.I have had boutique amps like boogie and higher end fender amps.I have had lower end amps as well. This amp is worthy of much praise and if you want an affordable alternative and a little bit different sound this is the way to go.Plug into it and turn it up.It takes me back to a time when I just forgot about pedals and just played music. Kills other amps in this price range and it kills some of the overpriced stuff as well.give this amp a try it wont let you down...

After One Year...

By CE Flint

from Mississippi

After owning this amp for a year, I have to say the spark is still there. This amp doesn't have a lot of bells & whistles, effects, tuners, and USB connections. What this amp has is a fantastic tone. I've played over 40 years and owned 3 Fenders, Marshall, Vox, Crate, Tech 21, Gibson, Kustom, and Roland Cube 60. Without a doubt, the finest tone I ever got was a 68 Super Reverb, which gave up on me years ago. This one is next. This amp has a beautiful sound, thanks to the 15" Blue Marvel that has been voiced for guitar. This gives the guitar such a full, beautiful tone it has to be heard to be believed. Many professional musicians have told me that this amp with my Strat, Tele or PRS Semi-hollow have the best sound they've ever heard. The 15" has a larger surface area than two 10" speakers, so you get a full, solid sound that is not too harsh, and not muddy at all. I've used this amp to play classic rock, blues, big band jazz, country, and British invasion. It loves pedals, and I've used TS's, Hardwire, Route66, and Bad Monkey's, all with great results. More than adequate volume. This amp can get loud with plenty of headroom. If you need it louder, throw a mic in front of it. If it's not loud enough, you're simply playing too loud. I don't believe anyone will go wrong with this amp and it certainly deserves a test drive. You might also check with Peavey about availability of a 2nd 15" matching cabinet. I have one, but I believe they are custom order only.

Best Kept Secret is Out

By Joe

from Belleville Illinois

One thing. No big deal but buy the tube protector for the back. The tubes are vulnerable without it. Change the tubes regularly, they wear out faster than 6L6s. Do that and this puppy will be perfect. I have a Twin and a Boogie and this guy is just as good. Killer tone. Made in the USA. Looks cool. Not heavy. Reasonable price.

ONE FINE AMP

By Bobby H.

from Portland,Tn.

I traded for the Delta Blues 115 recently.Got it from a guy who said he had owned for the last 5 years.I don`t know how old it is but it is in fantastic condition.I have owned probably 15 or 20 Peavey amps over the years`most of them solid state.This amp in my opinion blows em all out of the water. The tube sound is without a doubt unbelievably fuller and richer than ANY solid state amp. Long story short, even though this amp is used,I am as proud of it just as much as if it were brand new.So when you buy your new Delta Blues you can rest assured that this amp will be right there with you for years to come. as with any Peavey, they are built like a tank. ONE FINE AMP!!!!

Da Blues!

By Eddie

from AZ

I have owned a lot of amps in my life, form the inexpensive to the expensive, and for the money the delta is a really cool amp! I also own the Classic 50 410 and other cool amp! I play a lot at church and the amps have not let me down on tone or how loud they can get. Plenty of gas in these amps! The delta blues amp sound better if you are standing about 5 feet from it, that is where I find the tone zone for the amp. But all in all I like it a lot. I have been playing guitar for a long time, I only wish they would have had something like this when I was a Teen! I have had two Fender blues devills and I feel that the Peavy Delta blues amp and the classic 50 are just as good or in some ways better. For one there not a heavy.

DO NOT hesitate on this amp....

By Matthew Huston

from Jonesboro, IN

i was skepticle on buying this amp at first two years ago. But after having this amp i must say that i'm glad i had it. i previously lost it in a fire but when i get insurance money i will buy a new one. the reverb on this amp compares to a fender princeton in my opinion. the cleans are absolutely amazing and kick it into overdrive and you have that peavey overdrive that has been wanted by so many for years. i've tried the orange, the vox, the fenders and this amp stands up to the rest of them. my opinion, if you come across this amp.....GET IT! DON"T HESITATE!

Best Amp I Have Owned

By John Loudermilk

from Kentucky

You can turn down the volume for playing at home and turn it up when playing out. Plenty Loud for me. I had a Hot Rod Deluxe that was way too loud at home but this one is great. It is a little bigger than I imagined, just a little heavier. You can carry it. It has a pretty rugged handle. I like the reverb and the tremolo. I don't have to use a tremolo pedal now. It has a vintage look and feel. You can get all kinds of sounds from it. The manual has some tone setting suggestions. I feel it is a real bargain for the price. It sounds real good with my Gretsch.

what an amp!!!

By ric bolinger

from denver colorado

ive been playing for almost 40 years, and figured out some time ago a great amp can make a marginal guitar sound better, but a great guitar through a marginal amp sounds...well, marginal ive played through (and owned) just about every brand out there, in search of the "tone" i needed to maximize the features of my intrument and my music style. then i stumbled on the delta blues 115. i can honestly say after playing one i would have paid double the price to get half the amp. extraordiary design, simplicity, sound and functionality.. you gotta try this amp

This amp rocks!

By Brian Miears

from Rockwall, Texas

I simply do not have the resources to buy boutique amps. Even the used boutique amps were too expensive for me. I was getting very frustrated and almost made a very bad financial decision, when after several days of research I came across this little guy. Actually, there's nothing little about it. Everything inside the Delta Blues wants to melt your face with roots rock and blues riffs! It's natural state is very punchy, so if you want clean you'll have to experiment quite a bit but it can be done. Try rolling off your guitar volume and the mids on the amp. Having said that, you will not be able to get the vox clean sound if that is what you are after. The Delta Blues has a voice of its own and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! I play every week at church and we keep our amps off stage, so I have to leave the amp on one channel and use a pedal board. My favorite setting is on the drive channel, Pre on 3, Post on 12, reverb on 3, no tremolo, bass on 7, mids on 11, treble on 9. This give me a smooth, warm sound that I can drive the heck out of with a TS9 if need be. I'll be playing this amp for many years. Hope this helps!

A solid Southern charmer

By Behrouz Montakhab

from Princeton Junction, NJ

I spent months listening to YouTube demos of amps before choosing the Peavey Delta Blues. The other finalists were the VOX AC15, which is good for the British sound of The Beatles and The Who, and of course the many vintage Fender amps. Compared to the Peavey, the Fenders all sound wimpy. The Peavey just has something wild and raw about it, something Southern and swampy. I think it even sounds better clean than the Fender, even though that is what the Fender is known for. The built-in optical tremolo on the Peavey is not great. It?s okay at low settings, but if you really want good amp tremolo you might be better off with the Fender or the Vox, or using an effects pedal. I was worried that the Peavey would be too powerful for a living room practice amp, but it isn?t. It?s a little big for a practice amp, but it looks nice if you have the space for it. I?m not into distortion but you can get the Peavey to break up with high pre-gain. I haven?t had it long enough to have to replace tubes, so I don?t know how much of a hassle that will be. I like the fact that it is made in the U.S.A. It?s pretty heavy, so you might need a cart if you?re playing shows with it.

great tremolo

By Alex Locke

from NJ

nice amp. warm sound. great tremolo. i recommend getting the tremolo pedal so you can switch between tremolo and clean. Tremolo pedal doesn't come with the amp. sounds much better than the fender blues junior in my opinion. Peavey Classics are also good altho the Classics I've had tend to overheat and give off some hum unlike the Delta Blues which are pretty quiet. Definitely a quality product, solid, well-built. Kind of big for casual apartment use, but the size of the speaker gives it the sound quality.

Very good amp

By Bruce Gordon

from Roseburg, Oregon

I'm working with an AC15, and this Delta Blues 115...naturally 30watts is a more powerful amp. If you're looking for natural distortion for blues, go no further than the Peavey. However, there is not much clean headroom in it; I'm the kind of player who wants a clean undistorted sound often, so I'm leaning towards the AC15. After all, I use a processor for FX, and I use that when I want a bluesy sound. I need to play around with it some more before I decide. If weight and portability were not a factor, I'd get an AC30, but lifting and carting the AC30 is really a bit too much for me, (bad back.) Both are great amps, but I need a clean sound. If I keep the Peavey, I'll let you know.

Great Harp Amp

By David Young

from Dubuque Ia.

I'm a harp player and I bought my 115 30 watt Delta Blues used for $200.00 took it to a gig later that week and went back and thanked the salesman. After a while I dialed in the 2 channels to my liking and marked them and it's working great for both backup and leads I have had several amps both tube and solid state this one kicks butt by a mile or two. I haven't even tried to swap out the preamp tubes yet, don't think I'll need to. Peavey did good. Have some hum in the reverb at around 4 but have been researching it and should be able to correct it myself.....It could only be better if it were lighter. Almost Bought the Fender Blues Jr.(what I went shopping for) but the 15" speaker is lower/fuller hands down. I may still buy the Fender but haven't yet.
